Makena Surf Luxury Vacation

We are working on a new video for our luxury rental Makena Surf. It’s taking longer than what we originally thought it would take to put it together. But it will be fun when it’s done. I can’t wait to upload it!  In the meantime, check out this video we have right now… Aloha!

We’ve Got A Blog, Now What?

It’s easy to start a blog.  The hard part is maintaining it.  The crucial part is to make sure we connect, and stay connected with our readers, our guests, our audience and  our friends. We’ve started a blog, now what?

I had been “travelling” around the internet these past few days, visiting other travel blogs and Maui blogs to see what’s out there.  There are many interesting and informative blogs in the net.  The challenge is how do we make this blog stand out from the rest?  How do we make this blog dynamic (a.k.a. boring, not allowed)? How do we make this blog fun? How we ensure that the readers will want to come back over and over again.

I suppose we can run a contest, maybe a give-away.  But that is not really what the purpose of this blog is.  This blog is primarily for all who are visiting Maui, plans to visit Maui and are dreaming of visiting Maui.  This blog was created as an extension of our website, of http://www.alohaluxuryproperties.com/(in case it’s not obvious, we want to disclose that).  We would like to provide a wonderful resource to the guests we have on our luxury vacation rental units, and we thought a blog is a good way to do that.

But this blog is not only for the guests and visitors, but also for us who live on  Maui. It’s for the locals and kamaaina who do not want to take for granted the beauty of this paradise.  As we always say, “lucky we live Hawaii”.

And so, you’ll see that this blog will be another one of those ‘talk story” blog.   Ah, how can I not do a “talk story” blog – that’s what I do best! A hui hou!
